Giorgio Armani - Giorgio Armani's Feminine Mfw Collection

Giorgio Armani presented a feminine collection in its Milan Fashion Week showcase this morning (27.02.11).

The luxury Italian fashion house - which brought the Italian city's fashion week to a close - displayed a palette of silver, black and pastel rose in its autumn/winter 2011-12 line, which "emphasises the beauty of the body, but never flaunts it".

With music legend Tina Turner assuming a front row seat at the show, the 76-year-old designer also featured a variety of textures - including silks, satins and suedes - to give an opulent look to the new pieces featured in the collection.

Following the close of the show, Tina said: "Totally fantastic - as always."

After showcasing a new slightly flared trouser which cuts off just above the ankle, the grand finale of the Armani show featured a whole host of shimmering Cinderella-style ballgowns, adorned with crystal fringing, hand-embroidered organza and charmed chokers.

Giorgio Armani recently explained he thinks using crystals in his designs will also allow men - as well as women - to look "elegant" yet "contemporary".

He said: "I thought of using these luminous crystals as an unusual, beautiful detail, creating a contemporary, elegant look for men.

"I designed a black, perfectly proportioned, slim-fit suit complete with a shirt in the same colour, with tiny Swarovski crystals applied to the shirtfront to give it an original, unexpected look. The crystals capture the light and therefore the eye."
